beard. he bought his compound using a fake national i.d. card and the occupants didn't pay taxes. when venturing outside, he liked to wear a wide-brimmed cowboy hat to avoid aerial detection, a tidbit that the london daily mayo had some fun with to create this depiction of bin laden in a stetson -- a black one, of course. and his wife posed as a deaf-mute when she went into the hospital to have their children. we have phillip mudd whose work spans the cia. according this report, they were in the dark. >> the short answer, michael, is they didn't know much. what's remarkable about this report is how frank and really honest it is. and the government implosion syndrome, you mentioned that. that's a phrase we might want to use in d.c. every now and then. particularly capitol hill could learn a few things from it. i think what you see in this demonstration is dysfunctionalty within the pakistani government but also some pretty good security on the part of bin laden and his immediate family. it is a remarkably frank, candid and honest assessment of what pakistan failed to do. actually, i rea
